Not being pessimistic, but a realist, anyone that thinks DiFi's bill is dead had better think again. This was merely a move by Harry Reid to give him cover for his NRA A rating and all the funding that is associated with it.

Therefore, some Democrats will be less afraid of Harry or Obama or George, whoever it is that frightens them, than they are of voters who vote their second amendment rights.

It’s the easiest thing in the world to be a pessimist, and the least American. We’re optimists, and as tough as things are, as many skirmishes as we’ve lost, we haven’t lost this country to the left quite yet. If you had to choose between being them or us, you’d be crazy to choose being them. We’re going to win, and America is going to rise again.

Pessimism is a cop-out, an excuse to do nothing and wait for the end instead of figuratively fixing bayonets and charging head-long into the enemy. That military metaphor is no accident, because decades in...
